Tunisia arrests suspect in politician's killing

10 February 2014, 08:28

Tunis - Tunisia's government says the suspect in the 25 July assassination of an opposition politician is among four men arrested in an overnight counter-terrorism raid.

The Interior Ministry statement on Sunday described the men as "dangerous terrorists" and identified one as Ahmed Melki, known as the "Somali" who is wanted in connection with the assassination of Mohammed Brahmi, a left-wing parliamentarian whose slaying last summer provoked a political crisis.

One of the suspects was described as severely wounded after being shot in the face. Three policemen were wounded in the gun battle.

Last week, Tunisian forces stormed the house of a suspect in the February slaying of another left-wing politician, Chokri Belaid. All seven militants in the house were killed.

Tunisia has been battling al-Qaeda linked extremists since its 2011 revolution.
